C Community of Bowness is a very desirable inner-city community in the city of Calgary.Bowness is a community on the North West side of the city of Calgary. The neighbourhood is bounded by the Bow River to the north and east, Highway 1 (16th Avenue) to the South and Stoney Trail to the West. Did you know that Bowness was once its own town separate from the city of Calgary? It was amalgamated and part of the city of Calgary officially in  1964. We consider it a popular infill community in the city of Calgary for the relative affordability and the conversion of older homes being torn down to build multiple buildings on the same plot of land. The community is popular for investors seeking large lots to convert to duplexes and fourplexes.

Distance to the downtown core is about 15-20 minutes and the BRT (Bus Rapid Transit – Larger buses with fewer stops) run along Bowness Trail for an easier community to and from Downtown. Only about 15 minutes to the downtown core, Bowness is gaining popularity and is ranked as one of the top communities.

One of the most popular parks in the city of Calgary is Bowness Park for both summer and winter activities. It is a popular place for picnics, summer sports, and boating.  The community of Bowness is also adjacent to WinSport. Winter sports at Winsport include a variety of Olympic and recreational sports: Tubing, Bobsleigh, Public Luge, Skeleton, Skating, Hockey (Shiny), Skiing and Snowboarding. Summer Activities include Summer Bobsleigh, Zipline (North America’s Fastest), Bungee Jumping (Free Fall), Mini Golf, Scenic Chair Lift to the top of the hill, Mountain biking, Skyline Luge, and public skating.

Less than 5 minutes to exit the city of Calgary via Highway 1 (16th Avenue West) if you are looking for a community with a quick escape out of the city and to the mountains for the weekend.
